As the main international airport in Denmark and the largest airport in Scandinavia CPH Airport provides commute for about 30 million people each year.
This proof of concept explores the potential of using VR as a means of recertifying permissions to drive on the tarmac. The VR Driver Trainer allows employees to train driving in the airfield and earn their recertification in a simulated model of the airport in virtual reality.
Some factors like traffic and weather conditions are hard to plan and train for in the real world. The VR Driver Trainer however simulates both the traffic patterns of cars, buses and planes, as well as snowy, rainy and sunny weather conditions. For further realism the user controls the virtual car with a physical steering wheel and car pedals.
